Charlie Carver and Max Carver attend the 2013 MTV Movie Awards in April.
Think “True Blood” is the steamiest premium cable can get? Well, HBO is doubling its sex factor by hiring “Teen Wolf“‘s Charlie and Max Carver — the twin brothers behind our favorite beastly troublemakers, Aiden and Ethan — to co-star in the network’s much-talked-about Damon Lindelof pilot, “The Leftovers,” Deadline reports. Move over, Bon Temps vamps, two very studly werewolves are coming to a town near you!
Directed by Peter Berg of “Friday Night Lights” fame, “The Leftovers” is the small screen adaptation of the Tom Perrotta book of the same name, which follows a group of suburbanites in a post-Rapture world. Max and Charlie will play “happy-go-lucky” twins Adam and Scott Frost, respectively, who befriend the chief of police’s (played by Justin Theroux) daughter in the dark new world in which they live. Sounds like the brothers’ roles will deviate from their “Teen Wolf” parts significantly — “happy-go-lucky” is the last term we’d use to describe Aiden and Ethan. Way to spread your wings, guys!
While we’re pumped to hear the dimpled and chiseled duo nabbed such a sweet gig, we hope this doesn’t spell trouble for their time on “Teen Wolf.” All that sadistic torturing and creepy morphing is really starting to grow on us…
+ What do you think about the twins’ new job? Will you check them out if “The Leftovers” gets picked up for a full-season run?
